Healthy Foods, Happy Life!

Posted by Jessie Lee on

Whole foods generally remain close to their state in nature. They do not have added sugar, starch or flavouring. For instance, baked potato instead of potato chips, and chicken breast instead of nuggets. Since whole foods are not manipulated to be addictive like many foods containing added sugar, we need to develop good habits to healthy eating! Eating whole foods is a good way to get plenty of nutrients, antioxidants, and fibre.

If Monday is a no meat day, how about we include whole foods in our diet for most of the week, and leave Sunday to be a cheat day? Let's try to cut down on processed meat and eat more whole food together!

Choosing mostly whole foods will result in a nutritious diet that is naturally higher in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
